Servant Salamander 1.6 beta 7 Changelog

Release date: December 7, 2000


  • CheckVer plug-in: check for the latest versions of Salamander and plug-ins (connects to ALTAP web page to download information about new versions)
  • hot-keys for hot-paths were moved back to Ctrl+numbers (Shift+numbers were conflicting with some national keyboard layouts)
  • context menu for columns in detailed views

  • you can use relative paths ("..", "\") also in archives (when unpacking)

  • text/hex viewer: correct selecting in hex mode at the file beginning
